I've been a space nut all my life. Apollo, Star Trek, Galileo, Rockets... you name it.
The closest I've come to actually being involved is when I did the graphics for the Hubble mission patch:
I was doing some work for Omega Optical http://www.omegafilters.com/ and they got the honor of designing the mission patch. They couldn't get text to curve, so I did the layout for them. Hey, 15 seconds of fame is better than none at all!
Well, when I'm not being Spacer, maintaining my family or working on my house, I play with SAABs:
This summer I'll be introducing my son to Estes rockets. Can't wait!
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home

My son keeps asking, "did we get a message from an alien yet?" And I tell him we just have to keep looking.
